The City of Woodway is proud to be served by a very capable and well-trained Public Safety Department, with all sworn officers cross-trained as firefighters and police officers. In the state of Texas, there is only a handful of Public Safety Departments. Woodway is served by such a force, which works tirelessly on 12-hour shifts to maintain the high expectations of our residents. While the selection and training of these personnel is much more difficult, the benefits that accrue to the citizens in terms of officer ability and cost savings far out weigh the challenge of scheduling, recruitment and professional developments. The Woodway Public Safety Department is an excellent example of how officers can possess knowledge and skills within several fields.
